CHICAGO, Illinois, October 17, 2006—On October 31, 2006 at 10:30 a.m. (CST), Hostway will present a live webinar to explain how cable TV and telecommunications companies can offer Web hosting to capitalize on the significant growth expected in the Web hosting industry.
The US Web hosting market will become a $14.5 billion industry by 2010, up $7.6 billion from 2005, according to IDC's US Web Hosting Services Forecast 2006-2010.
“Now that cable and telecommunications companies offer Internet service, Web hosting is the next logical product to add to their bundled service offering,” said John Lee, director of global marketing for Hostway. “This webinar gives these companies the opportunity to learn from highly reputable and respected panelists how to incorporate hosting into their product mix and how this important addition will help them increase revenue and customer retention.”
Participants can register for “Generate New Revenue Streams with Web Hosting,” on Hostway's website.

- Web hosting market trends
- Cliff Boodoosingh, managing editor of TopHosts.com, an independent Web hosting directory
- Art Matteotti, vice president of global sales at Hostway, a leading provider of Web hosting and online service
“Offering professionally managed, outsourced Web hosting and email services to small- and medium-sized businesses is a great way to quickly and profitably get in the game of adding value to their customers and requires virtually no internal development or capital,” said Kallet.
Kallet will discuss pain points in the cable and telecommunications market and how Web hosting and online services can help alleviate those aches. As a former technology and operations executive, Kallet has lead the creation and delivery of award-winning products and services for a variety of computer and communications technology markets.
“Meeting the needs of the customer by creating and shaping value-added services is the primary challenge faced by hosting service providers. Those hoping to drive sustainable revenues in this market had better be up to speed or delve quickly into the outsourcing alternative, or they face being left behind,” said Boodoosingh.
He will share his expert opinion on the Web hosting market and how outsourcing Web hosting gives cable and telecommunications companies room to grow quickly.
Matteotti will moderate the Web seminar and offer insight on how Web hosting can create customer stickiness by maximizing end-user adoption.
